Hello My Friends & Welcome Visitors,

We have a new Challenge at Decorate To Celebrate it is Challenge # 80 Swim Party or Birthday!  I really had fun making these party favor boxes.



This fist one is filled with peppermint candy (I thought it would look like candy).




This second one has skittles in it as well as this cute little boy from the Silhouette Store.  I changed his face and used a peachy keen stamp because even though he is winking, I think he could look like he has water splashed in his eye.

Recipe for these Pool Boxes:

SVG Cutting Files - Swimming Pool 3-D Container
Pool Party Sign - Silhouette Store
Boy In Pool Tube - Miss Kate Cuttables
Peachy Keen = PK 490 -Everyday Character Face Assortment
Paper Bazzill and from stash

I am entering these projects into the following challenges:

Dinosaur Waterfall Card

Hello My Friends & Welcome New Visitors,

Have you ever worked on a project and just couldn't get it right?  I worked on this project for 1 1/2 hours last night and just could not get it to work.  I finally got so frustrated I put it aside and went to bed.  I got up this morning and put it together in 10 minutes...errrrrrrr!

This is a card I made for my son's girlfriend Sarah.  Many of you know about Sarah & Brian from my other post.  They have an adorable little apartment and Sarah has decorated her dining room in dinosaurs.  I really need to take pictures to show you how cute it is.  They are the ones I made the dinosaur wineglasses for.  So here is my project; my very first waterfall card. This is the card closed.



This is what it looks like when you pull the tail.




Did you know that Roar means "I love You" in dinosaur?  I certainly love Sarah and I am so glad she is in my life.  Happy Birthday Sarah!

A Corner Bookmark

Hello My Friends,

My friend Shirl over at Creations By Shirl always has the cutest digital stamps on her blog.  One of the design teams she belongs to is called Milk Coffee Stamps.  I went over there and had a look around the other day and found this adorable stamp!  It reminds me of someone I love very dearly who always has her nose in a book.  I decided to make her this corner bookmark to include in her birthday card next month....shhhh...I can't tell you who it is, I want to surprise her.




Here is the bookmark on a book.



I am sorry if the pictures are a little shadowy, we have had overcast skies for two days.

I am entering this bookmark into the following challenges:

Hello Kitty Copic Refill Holder

I am giving away a prize. To read about it click http://www.chrissandlou.blogspot.com/2014/06/prize-giveaway.html

Hello My Friends,

Today I would like to show you something I made for my Hello Kitty Craft Room.  I have finally gotten to the point where my copics are starting to run out of ink....mostly my favorite colors that I use all the time..it has only taken 5 years for them to finally start running out of ink.  So I decided to make this refill holder that I found at the Silhouette Store by Jamie Lane.  If you click on this link; it will take you to the directions for making this box.  I bought the Hello Kitty paper at Joanne's Store a couple of months ago; it has been sitting out where I can see it because I love it soooo much!


Because I want this box to last a long time, I cut the pattern first with Silhouette Chipboard.  I re-sized it to 13.5.  I then cut the paper in the same size and glued it to the chipboard.



The Silhouette of the Kitty with Hello across it was free because I am playing along with the 2nd Annual Hello Kitty Blog Hop that is being held by Jaded Blossoms and SVG Cutting Files.  If you would like to join and get over 20 free Hello Kitty SVG Cutting Files; send me a message on Facebook and I will send you an invitation.

I am entering this Hello Kitty Project into the following challenges:
